How do you italicize and bold text?

How do we bold and italicize text?

by Anonymousreply 8607/17/2017

It's best avoided,especially in OPs because people mess it up and bold or italicize the whole thread list below the post.

by Anonymousreply 104/20/2013

But could you tell me, please R1.

by Anonymousreply 204/20/2013

Third section from the end.

by Anonymousreply 304/20/2013

Lemme see if I can do it...

If you want to [i]italicize[/i], I think you have to do this [ i ] (but no spaces) right before, and then [ / i ] (no spaces) to end the italics. It might be the same with [b]bolding[/b], but make it [ b ] and [ / b ] to end it.

But I never get the quoting quite right...

by Anonymousreply 404/20/2013

Okay I was wrong. Trying again. (I'm just testing. Ignore me)

How irritating. Why can't they do it the normal way with [b] and [i]?

I believe it has been around since before there was an agreed "normal" way.

by Anonymousreply 1910/11/2015

Here is how you do it:

[bold] word [/bold] - without the spaces so it will look like this: [bold]word[/bold]

[italic] word [/italic] - without the spaces so it will look like this: [italic]word[/italic]

by Anonymousreply 2010/11/2015

Oops... okay, so it works even with spaces.

There's a fucking HELP link at the top of the page that gives you all this information... if you're too stupid to click it, you're too stupid to use bold and italics.

[b*ld] use this one except replace the star with an o ... same with [/b*ld]

Then [it*lic] and [/it*lic]

Also, [qu*te] but don't use [/quote] because it doesn't work. You just hit return and the quoted text will end.
